Seeing Abby's big personality develop more every day is so amazing to us.
She is all kinds of fun. She is laughing most of the time. Real, big laughs. And she'll do most anything to get a laugh out of you.
She introduces herself to everyone. Usually by climbing up on their laps. She believes everyone wants a little piece of Abby.
She dances, she sings and she draws with more intensity and focus than she does anything else. (By the way, this dress has Nemo on it and you'd better believe she will come right up to you and shout "Nemo!" and point to her dress when she's wearing it.)
When she wakes up in the morning she does cannonball jumps in her bed while yelling "Abby's Awake! Abby's Awake!"
She runs around in circles. She plays hard. She swims hard. She laughs hard. She hugs hard. She sleeps hard.
She keeps us on our toes and wanting more (most of the time).
We just got back from a fabulous trip with my family to Myrtle Beach. While we were out there I tried to find some picture from last year and realized I never blogged about our trip then. So, it's a year late, but it was fun to compare what the kids looked like one year ago.
The above picture is right before we left for the airport. Below is our first morning in Myrtle. The kids loved the pools at our place. We stayed in the same place this year.
The view from our balcony.
Abby loved to watch the ocean from the balcony and that was the same this year. Look how much her hair has grown!

I think it's funny that both my kids are still wearing the swim suits they wore last year/
Both kids loved to play in the sand and still do!

What a Crew!
Last morning! I loved that dress. It was Katie Grace's.
We have the most awesome Snow Cone Stand right by our house. It is a town landmark and everyone talks about it and it's so busy all summer and we really only go once a year, but it's still cool to know it is there.
It was announced right before Summer that due to some City Regulations it could not reopen and was permanently shuttered. There was enormous Public Outcry. I'm not kidding.
So a three year permit was granted and everyone calmed down and the stand officially opened Sunday at 1pm.
I felt obligated to go. The wait was SOOOO long. SOOOO long. But still. Had to do it.
This week's Family Fun Saturday looked exactly like last week's!
We headed to the Library to claim more prizes for the Summer Reading Program. This is Aaron in his new Flip Flops. He is SOOOO into his flip flops. Oh my. This is also his new Myrtle Beach T-shirt which I am so thankful for because he wore the dog out of the one he got last year and was still insisting on wearing it constantly.
Thomas books at the Library!
We love the Library
We got two more meals at Cotton Patch, but I took pictures there with my camera and I haven't downloaded them yet.
